Grassland Stewardship Conservation Programming

article image Miistakis is part of a partnership project to evaluate certification programs and payment for ecological services programs around the world that support both conservation of natural habitat and livestock operations. With funding from the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, Miistakis will be working with the Ranchers Stewardship Alliance, Nature Saskatchewan and Prairie Trust. The long term goal is to develop and pilot appropriate and effective programs that will be successful for both agricultural producers and conservation objectives. (photo credit: M. Burgess)
